A CONSCIOUS CHRISTMAS THANK YOU

2017 has been an amazing year. We’ve been lucky enough to meet some incredibly talented, forward-thinking designers that are changing not only the way they produce work, but also helping to change the way consumers think about their buying habits. Collaborating with conscious creatives helps to broaden the horizon of slow living and slow fashion, and we look forward to sharing more brands with you in the New Year.

To round off the year, here’s a few of the great brands we’ve had the pleasure of working with in 2017 …

 

With thanks to, from top left to right:

SAYA Designs: Inspired by nature and handmade by Balinese artisans, S A Y A Designs create unique handcrafted and beautiful hairpins. Using root wood salvaged from old plantations, each hairpin completes an amazing cycle, as every purchase plants up to 10 endangered tree species back into the rainforests in Indonesia.

With knowledge of the workings of the fashion industry and a drive to make a change, our modern day girl boss duo were inspired to start AmaElla in their personal search to find beautiful lingerie made from certified organic cotton.

P and Lee Newham, Designed By Good People focuses on branding and packaging for ethical and environmentally friendly businesses. 50/50 is the company’s first project where they have made their own products, and as the name suggests, 50% of the profits go to a good cause.

Ono: Designed for all those that are courageous, wild and spirited, and dare to follow their own star, Ono is the elegantly ethical fashion accessories brand that is founded upon the principle of cause no harm. Pssst, it’s vegan too!

The brand’s dedication to maintaining their ethical ethos shines through at every stage, from their carefully sourced peace silk and end-of-line fabric, to their artisan embroiderers and recycled tags.

A big thank you so everyone else we have also worked with throughout the year, we simply couldn’t fit you all in this one post!
